Update From Pastor Chuck Apr 24

Turning Point Family,

We continue to soldier through another week together during these restrictions. Please know that your leadership prays for you daily that God will enable you to remain immovable through this ordeal.  I know we all have our moments, and immovable doesn’t mean faultless.  It just means we have a resolve to steady ourselves and remain rooted in our trust in God’s sovereign grace for this season.  He is good and with His strength, we will see the other side of this AND we will thrive!
I want to personally thank you for your continued connection and support through these difficult days.  Our online services and weekday touch points have given us the ability to stay connected.  Many of you are dialing in for those opportunities, your presence is noticed and felt throughout our faith family.
I want you to know some of the things that have been happening over the last week or so.  Our Student Pastor Luke Cunningham lead a staff and volunteer initiative to call through our list of active Turning Point families.  We simply want to know how you are doing and find out if there is anything we can do to serve and support you at this time. Today, the 897th call was completed!  Now we will be giving our attention to call our recent guests and some of the other families that have attended over the last year. If you haven’t heard from us, it might be because we don’t have your correct information.  Please feel free to update us by sending your new contact information to jennifer@tpcconline.com.
And thank you for your incredible generosity.  Your faithfulness to remain financially supportive is one of the great stories coming out of Covid19!  Here are some of the things we’ve been able to do for our community this week through your generosity:
•    Continue providing masks for frontline health workers.
•    Provided a lunch meal to honor over 200 nurses and health care workers at UMC and Covenant.
•    We sent four truck drivers, among our Turning Point family, a thank you note along with a meal to let them know how much we appreciate them.
•    We’ve been able to assist six families directly impacted by Covid19 in Lubbock with pastoral care and support.
In addition to these, we’ve gotten several reports of individuals and community groups taking action to be the church in our city.  Todd and Angela Pool’s group reached out and provided some much-needed love and attention to Lakeridge Nursing Home with some care packages.  Their smiling faces said it all.  Be sure and check out the pictures on Turning Point’s facebook page.
We’ll “see” you this Sunday as we wrap up our heaven study.  Join us on our livestream where you can connect with others with our chat feature and receive prayer in one of our breakout rooms.  Services are at 9:00, 10:00, 11:00.  Go to the website and click the “join us live” button at the top of the home page.

We love you TPCC!
